"A petrol head, time served motor engineer with 40 years of Land Rover experience"

Hi, I am a petrol head and a time served Motor Engineer. I have owned Land Rovers since I was bitten by the bug as an apprentice at a Bedfordshire dealership 40 years ago. It was a rare treat to carry out pre-delivery inspections and road test the then brand new Range Rover. Today I experience the same thrill each day as I drive to and from home in North Wales to work in my beloved Discovery 4. Work is running a busy rural repair workshop in North Shropshire and the 20 mile commute is a treat at each end of the day.I have been in the past, when time allowed, a regular competitor in off road trialling, latterly with the North Wales Land Rover Club and I am proud to have driven almost all the green roads in Shropshire and North Wales. During this time I have owned and run many different Land Rover vehicles currently favouring my personalised Discovery 4 with a 1985 Land Rover 90 V8 county Station Wagon that I rebuilt and extensively modified some years ago for when the desire takes me. I also cherish and run a classic Audi quattro which I have had since 1988 and at the other end of the spectrum in 2012 we added a Toyota Yaris Hybrid that my wife Jo uses everyday, this we find gives us a vehicle for every occasion.
